How it works
The Scenar uses biofeedback- by stimulating the nervous system, it is able to teach the body to heal itself. The device sends out a series of signals through the skin and measures the response.
Each signal is only sent out when a change, in response to the previous signal, is recorded in the electrical properties of the skin. Visible responses include reddening of the skin, numbness, stickiness (the device will have the feeling of being magnetically dragged), a change in the numerical readout and an increase in the electronic clattering of the device.
The C-fibres, which comprise 85% of all nerves in the body, react most readily to the electro-stimulation and are responsible for the production of neuropeptides and other regulatory peptides.
The body can get accustomed to a stable pathological state, which may have been caused by injury, disease or toxicity. The scenar catalyses the process to produce regulatory peptides by stimulation of C-fibres for the body to use where necessary. It is these neuropeptides that in turn re-establish the bodys natural physiological state and are responsible for the healing process. As these peptides last up to several hours, the healing process will continue long after the treatment is over. The large quantity of neuropeptides and C-fibres in the Central Nervous System can also result in the treatment on one area aiding with other chemical imbalances, correcting sleeplessness, appetite and behavioral problems.
In Russia, there are over 50,000 cases of the devices use and some 600 practitioners currently use the device as their principal treatment instrument. A vast wealth of information is available from research papers, clinical reports and training manuals. The device is used on most types of disease or injury: circulatory, sensory, respiratory, neurological, genitor-urinary, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, immune and psychological disorders.
The scenar is also credited with vastly reducing recovery times. Russian athletes have been known not only to compete after serious injuries, but even to break world records. In accident and emergency wards, its ability to aid recovery is used to help victims of cardiac arrest, massive trauma and coma. It has recently been discovered to also aid in improving learning ability, memory, sexual function and improved physical health. Finally trials in Russia have also realised scenars usage for pain relief. Both cancer and fracture patients have found more pain relief from the release of natural opoids after scenar treatment than from administered opiates.
The Scenar weighs approximately 300grams, is 200mm in length, with an electrical contact at one end and runs off a 9V battery. This is run over the spine and abdomen or the infected area, recording the resistive response to its signals and using its sophisticated software to return a fresh signal. A gentle tingling/stroking sensation will be felt. The practitioner is looking for anomalies on the skin surface, which may be highlighted by redness, numbness, stickiness or a change in numerical display or sound. Although these areas may not seem to directly relate to the obvious symptom, by treating these asymmetries, (as the Russians call them), the healing process will commence.
Patients having Scenar treatment need to take responsibility for their health and are advised to participate actively in the treatment and recovery process. The chemical compounds, released by the nerves, affect not only the problem areas, but also circulate in the blood treating other areas of the body. This goes some way to explaining how old and often forgotten problems are brought to the surface for treatment.
The Russians state that a chronic problem that the patient has may take up to 6 weeks treatment, with long lasting effectiveness. Acute problems may just take one or two treatments. They say that the Scenar proves effective in 80% of all cases, of which full recovery occurs in two thirds of them and significant healing in the remainder.
What conditions can Scenar treat?
In the UK, the devices are licensed by the British Standards Institute for pain relief only. However, because of the nature of the device, viz., stimulating the nervous system, the Russian experience is that Scenar affects all the body systems.
The Russian experience suggests that it can be effective for a very broad range of diseases, including diseases of the digestive, cardio-vascular, respiratory, musculoskeletal, urinary, reproductive and nervous systems.
It is also useful for managing ENT diseases, eye diseases, skin conditions and dental problems. It has also been found beneficial in burns, fractures, insect bites, allergic reactions, diseases of the blood and disorders involving immune mechanisms; endocrine, nutritional and metabolic disorders; stress and mental depression, etc. It is known to give real relief from many types of pain.
